>>60910>You think it is ok to just silently shut out a large chunk of your users?
Don't have a large chunk of users at all.
At least not regulars/posters.
There also has been major problems with people using vpn to spam, ban evade, and one man raid (aka have bitch fits) that are disruptive and even a existential threat to the site.
Until a solution can be found to those using vpn to be destructive, it is reasonable that their use be restricted in certain ways so that the site doesn't get taken down again due to some retard spamming CP while the mods are taking a 16 hour wank break or whatever the fuck they do other then the very basic elements of their job.
Seriously, some assholes have actual mental problems and will as a single person spam this site for hours. Which due to this site being slow and low population, ends up being extremely disruptive even if the spammed content isn't illegal.
So far due to the vpn restriction such bitch fits have been minimal and far more contained.
So while not ideal the vpn restrictions have been effective against the problem.
If you have a viable alternative solution then please do post it. I would also prefer to have the ablity to post images and the like while using a vpn.
And yes I agree with you that it's bullshit when the mods pull the "don't say anything I don't like unless it's on meta" which isn't in the rules and they will never modify the rules to tell people except through warnings and bans. Because they lack basic oversight and like to flex by making up rules on the spot.
But that is a dead horse topic at this point, so I digress.
